Jeeps aren’t just trucks. They’re not just modes of transportation. They’re not just fashion statements. Jeeps are a lifestyle. If you own a Jeep, you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t own a Jeep, you probably know someone who knows what I’m talking about. Either way, this classic off-road machine remains as one of the most tricked-out, abused, tested and versatile vehicles out there. Jeep owners continue to find new ways to make them personal.

Below are a few cool accessories that will take your spring adventures to the next level:

  1. A real truck bed

You’ve finally made it. Across the state, up the mountain, over the creek. Now it’s time to light the grill, unpack the Wrangler, and pitch the tent. But not so fast. Before you pull out that guitar you just don’t quite know how to play, you should set up one of these bad boys. This backseat air mattress will give you the best sleep you’ve ever had at a campsite. Just fold down the seats and slide it in. Your nephew’s car bed doesn’t stand a chance against this thing.

  1. Friends first

Is your best friend dirty? I’m talking about your dog, you weirdo. Anyway, if you have a pet that loves the wind in its hair just as much as you, then a durable cargo net is exactly what you need to keep that friendship going. Basically, this divider or netting keeps your furry passenger where you want him and your cargo secure, allowing you to keep the top and doors off when you ride.

  1. More like tail-great

Do you want to get the most out of your tailgate? Not just more. The most. Well, how’s the ability to mount a spare RotoPax, highlift jack, shovel and 40-inch tire sound? Because that’s what you’re gonna get from the M-3 Rear Tire Carrier, the most modular tire carrier on the market. This thing’s like the Swiss army knife of tailgates, keeping you totally prepared at every turn. This high-quality aftermarket tire carrier is perfect for your build, especially where larger-than-stock tires are concerned. Also, installation is simple – no drilling or cutting is required.

  1. Rack ’em up

Whether you need more storage room for a trip or extra space up top so five of your buddies can squeeze in the back, roof racks are a huge asset to Jeep life. The problem is that they’re actually huge. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack allows for an aerodynamic design that can haul with the best of them. It comes equipped with a side ladder to make loading and unloading easy. Oh, and side note about the side ladder: It looks cool. So get used to people yelling NICE RACK as you drive by.

  1. Nap time

Go big or go home. That’s your motto. It’s what drives you off road. It’s what drives your everyday tasks to the fullest. And if you’re a true Jeep owner, it also applies to chilling. Introducing the Jammock. Yes, the Jammock is exactly what it sounds like – a hammock for your Jeep. Essentially this sturdy, flexible material can substitute as the roof of your truck. Once you’ve found the perfect stopping point, just climb on top and chill in the most extreme way possible. Check them out at
